The School of Mathematics (including Engineering) is proud to be working with Athena SWAN to create a progressive and inclusive culture for women working in Science. The School achieved Bronze Athena SWAN Award status in October 2015, and this was renewed in May 2019.
Athena SWAN is an Equality Challenge Unit Charter dedicated to gender equality in higher education and research. When it was launched in 2005 it focused on advancing the careers of women academics and researchers in STEMM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine). In 2015 the Charter was expanded to address gender equality more broadly, recognising work undertaken in additional subjects (Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Business and Law), and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students.
